All I know about this kind of butterfly is that they seem unwilling to pose with wings spread out.

I saw first an osprey and then an eagle at water's edge by the same house.
It took off and flew low over the ninth fairway.
A few days later I saw an eagle in the same spot. It soon also flew low over the ninth fairway.
The eagle looked like it had something -- maybe a small bird -- in its talons.

You might have noticed that most of my recent photos are wildlife and nature.
Given the constraints of social distancing and concern about getting or transmitting
COVID-19, I rarely venture out of the confines of my gated community in Florida.
Fortunately, it is an Audubon certified sanctuary, so wildlife and nature are plentiful.
Kites return to Southwest Florida in the spring. Nice to see them back.

There are bald eagles in my neighborhood. It seems that all of my friends see them, but this season I had not seen one despite a lot of looking.
Until yesterday. This elegant bird stood calmly on a high limb of a scrub pine. I asked it to move a bit to remove the shadows and to get a small limb out of its face, but no luck.
